Experimental listRegistry function

Hi all,

In LiveCode 4.5, an experimental function 'listRegistry' was added.

I just tested the following in LiveCode 4.6.4 on Windows 7, but nothing happens.
Note that I tried both with and without a backslash at the end of the parentKey.

-- constant kColorsKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors\"
constant kColorsKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors"

on mouseUp
   local tColorKeys, tColorKey
   put empty into field 1
   put listRegistry(kColorsKey) into tColorKeys
   repeat for each line tColorKey in tColorKeys
      put tColorKey & tab & queryRegistry(tColorKey) & return after field 1
   end repeat
end mouseUp

It doesn't seem that I'm barred from reading the registry itself, since the following does work.

constant kColorKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors\ActiveBorder"

on mouseUp
   answer queryRegistry(kColorKey)
end mouseUp

Any ideas or suggestions?
